The Top 5 Road Trips in the UK

​​Beautiful little villages and narrow roads await when you plan road trips in the UK.

  • The Cotswolds

    The Cotswolds, in South-Western England, boast lush countryside, with a scattering of quaint villages. There are 18 villages that offer tourists picturesque views from quaint tea shops, and unusual items from the many unique shops. There are beautiful churches and friendly pubs at every stop. The average road trip through the Cotswolds takes about 4 days and covers about 70 miles. Bath is the southernmost point of the Cotswolds, and is potentially a good location to use as an anchor for your planning.

  • The Lake District

    The Lake District National Park, in the glorious county of Cumbria in North-West England, is home to magnificent mountains and England's largest and deepest lakes. It is an area of supreme natural beauty. The numerous towns and areas provide unique attractions. Hawkshead was the home of Beatrix Potter, and offers culture and charm. Keswick is a bustling market town, with many museums and galleries. Grasmere was the home of William Wordsworth, and boasts buildings dating back to the 13th century. Bowness-on-Windermere offers great dining experiences, and is a must for the water sport enthusiast; it is also a good point from which to explore the entire district. Ambleside lures nature photographers, and Coniston offers walking and climbing experiences. The Lake District is ideally covered in a 2-3 day road trip.

  • North Wales

    Enjoy the breathtaking scenery of the Snowdonia National Park, starting at Betws-y-Coed and heading west into the heart of Snowdonia. Stop off and explore the mountain - if you aren't quite up to the climb, you can reach the summit in a Snowdon Mountain Railway train. Then take the scenic route across the Strait through historic Caernarfon, and head over the water to explore the beautiful Isle of Anglesey. Allow 2 days for this magnificent trip.

  • The Yorkshire Moors

    The journey from Helmsley to Staithes is short, but you can choose to stop off in a village establishment and enjoy the forests, rivers and heather-covered acres of the North York Moors National Park. Pack your bicycle for the freshest experience of this exquisite beauty. Two days will ensure that you can really get to enjoy what this trip has to offer.

  • The Peak District

    From Manchester, you will head into the Pennines, experiencing the famous Snake Pass as you head towards a national park boasting cave exploration, hill walking and bike trails. An adventurer's paradise. This is a short road trip - easily doable in a day.
